    when sucking the solution up.. you have to start with the plunger down… but do you start from the first resistance or push the plunger all the way down?

    I don't think it would break the pipette, but your measurement wouldn't be accurate.

    When "dialing in" volume for micropipetter, remember to go past the desired value slightly, then dial back. Some mechanical error will be present if you simply dial up to the desired value directly. Good video!
